Simulation and assessment of ion kinetic effects in a direct-drive capsule implosion experiment

12 Oct 2016 Le Ari Kwan T. J. T. Schmitt M. J. Herrmann H. W. Batha S. H.

The first simulations employing a kinetic treatment of both fuel and shell ions to model inertial confinement fusion experiments are presented, including results showing the importance of kinetic physics processes in altering fusion burn. A pair of direct drive capsule implosions performed at the OMEGA facility with two different gas fills of deuterium, tritium, and helium-3 are analyzed... (read more)
